Stopped here on way to Kentucky,
Nice rooms but missed wakeup calls 2 mornings in a row.
Service not up to speed except for valet parking.
pasta buffet was nice, casino was tight, enjoyed dog races,won few dollars.

Room Tip: Try to get a room close to walkway to casino

Was going to the Charleston WV area to see a Cirque Du Soleil show decided to stay at the Mardi Gras. Was a great location close to everything the hotel was like brand new great pool area. Rooms were clean and we slept great never heard anything. The breakfest in the morning was great made to order omellets fried potatoes sausage /bacon and everthing else you would want. Casino was really nice and the restaurants were really great. Also had dog track and you could bet the dogs or horses. The staff at this Hotel was excellent this is exactly how a hotel should be run and kept up.

We were going to be on the road for at least 8 nights so I was pleased to find this hotel. We are not gamblers, but thought this would be different and fun. The resort is very nice, rooms large, has all amenities, and very clean. We went into the casino, but only put $5 into the slots (big spenders). It was something to do after dinner. Breakfast was nice. The only negative was the restaurant which I will report on separately. Fun and different from the usual hotels.

Room Tip: Don't expect too much from the restaurant and you won't be disappointed.

This experiance was one of the best I have had in a hotel. The building is new, and emmaculately clean. The large property offers every ammenity you could ask for. The price in amazing for the room size, bar opportunites, resteraunts, gaming, pool, hot tub, and technology. Everything in sight is new. Security is tight, and made us feel safe. Room was HUGE and offered us more then we expected. EXTREMELY comfortable bed. Pool and Hottub are inside, but have two HUGE bay doors leading to an outside deck. We lounged in the hot tub with a drink, watching Monday night football. Casino is open 24/7 giving you a chance to get a late night snack/drink or just find something to do! We loved it so much we extended our stay another night, and staff was overly friendly and happy to talk to us and make arraingements to keep us in the same room. Breakfast in NOT Continental. Its a whole big ordeal. Several chefs making meals to order with MANY options. Ordered room service (24 hours a day) and they delievered an AWESOME pizza very quickly. The prices were very reasonable - 18 inch pizza for $16 will work for me EVERYTIME. Great location, a 1 or 2 minute drive from the resort is a Walmart, several resteraunts, movie theater. Short 15 minute drive to several sport venues and the capital complex (surely worth the trip!) At night there were several events taking place, and a car show. Always something to do! Do your self a favor even if you don't gamble and stay at this AMAZING resort!

Room Tip: Room on first floor is closer to casino/pool/hottub/bars 2nd floor is closest to ice and vending ma...

I highly recommend Mardi Gras Casino in Nitro, WV. The staff is very professional. I had left one of my favorite t shirts in my room. I got a call from the front desk an notified me that i left my shirt. They mailed it to me the next day. The suite was beautiful with a hot tub and the linens were awesome. The staff was very friendly and the breakfast provided in the morning was made to order. We will go back the to this hotel the next time we are in the area. We were very happy.

We stayed one evening in a suite at Mardi Gras. The suite was beautiful with a hot tub and the linens were awesome. The staff was very friendly and the breakfast provided in the morning was made to order. Holly Wills helped secure the reservation for us and answered every question we had. Thanks, Holly and Mardi Gras for a great birthday.

Room Tip: Upgrade to an executive suite

Google mapped a nice route down I-79 for us to go to Myrtle beach. When I looked for a hotel to stay the night, I was looking for a nice, new hotel. There were none on I-79 or they were all booked. So, I googles for "New" hotel in West Virginia.

I was pointed to Mardi Gras.

It was all worth the slight detour. The hotel is 2 years new and it's very nice. It has a Casino attached but we never went there.

We were there on a week night, so we didn't hear anything through the supposedly "paper thin" walls as mentioned by other Trip Advisor reviewers.

The room was big, nice and clean. The Queen size beds were so comfortable.
The bathroom has brass fixtures and a shower that you will never want to come out of, once you start it.

The towels were soft - not the sandpaper type you get at other hotels.

There is a nice 46" Samsung flat screen in the room with HD channels.

We were warned at reception that the mini bar has a sensor and that we would be charged if we even touched it - so, we stayed clear of the mini bar.

Parking was free and the complimentary continental breakfast was out of this world.

We will go back the to this hotel the next time we are in the area.

We were very happy.

Room Tip: Ask for the room that looks at the hill - there was a deer on the hill both nights that we were ther...
